Re: Sony Vaio PCG K115M keyboard problem

Hi, its easy to fix. you have your keyboard layout set to US Layout, ie americans have a couple of keys in reverse from ours. All you have to do is this Windows XP Start, Control Panel, regional & language settings, change all US Settings, in there to UK British, And it will fix your problems :-) if its windows 98/ME ETC start, control panel, Keyboard, and change the US Keyboard setting to UK British, u usually have to set it twice, ie select uk, apply it, then do it again before it changes... If you dont get it sorted will guide u though it just email me.. All the best John

You should replace the whole keyboard. I am guessing you wore the letters off of the keys. It is easy to replace and you don't have to worry about snapping off the key holds. If you are really attached to this keyboard for some reason you can find new keys at

Key board not working properly

The keybard probably has defective switches. They may have gotten wet or dirt in them. Not worth trying to fix. Buy new one...

They can be had off eBay for about $20 for brand new ones. Have a shop or competent person familiar with electronics work on it if you don''t feel capable.

The keyboard is USUALLY fairly easy to remove... USUALLY the second item to come off on a laptop when opening it.
